In the realm of holistic healthcare, various therapies and techniques aim to harmonize the mind, body, and spirit. One such practice gaining recognition is Arvigo Mayan Massage, a traditional healing modality rooted in ancient Mayan wisdom. This blog post delves into what Arvigo Mayan Massage is, explores its benefits, and discusses how it can complement pelvic floor physical therapy for a comprehensive approach to pelvic wellness.

What is Arvigo Mayan Massage?

Arvigo Mayan Massage, often referred to as the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® (ATMAT), is a holistic therapy founded on the ancient healing traditions of the Mayan people. Developed by Dr. Rosita Arvigo, a naprapathic physician, and traditional healer, this massage technique aims to restore balance within the body by addressing misalignments and congestion in the abdominal and pelvic regions.

The Benefits of Arvigo Mayan Massage

  1. Enhanced Circulation:

    Arvigo massage focuses on improving blood flow and lymphatic drainage in the abdominal area. This increased circulation helps nourish tissues, eliminate toxins, and promote overall organ health.

  2. Balancing Reproductive Organs:

    The massage technique is designed to align and support the optimal positioning of reproductive organs. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals dealing with fertility issues, irregular menstrual cycles, or discomfort related to reproductive health.

  3. Pelvic Floor Support:

    By addressing abdominal and pelvic imbalances, Arvigo Mayan Massage indirectly contributes to the health of the pelvic floor muscles. Improved alignment and circulation can positively impact pelvic floor function and alleviate certain symptoms.

  4. Emotional Release:

    T he therapy recognizes the interconnectedness of physical and emotional well-being. Arvigo massage may facilitate the release of stored emotions and stress in the abdominal area, promoting a sense of emotional balance.

Arvigo Mayan Massage and Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy

The integration of Arvigo Mayan Massage with pelvic floor physical therapy offers a holistic approach to pelvic wellness. Here's how they can complement each other:

  1. Alignment and Support:

    Arvigo techniques focus on aligning the pelvic and abdominal organs, creating a supportive foundation. This alignment can enhance the effectiveness of pelvic floor exercises prescribed in physical therapy.

  2. Addressing Root Causes:

    Arvigo Mayan Massage seeks to identify and address the root causes of pelvic discomfort. When used alongside pelvic floor physical therapy, it provides a comprehensive approach to addressing both symptoms and underlying issues.

  3. Patient-Centered Care:

    The combined approach allows for a personalized and patient-centered treatment plan. Pelvic floor physical therapists can tailor interventions to address individual needs, fostering a more integrative and effective healing process.
